    The Forgemaster finally falls, scorched and battered by the dragons' combined assault. The last remaining human combatant struggles to his feet, glancing at the dragons around him, then shouting something back to his assistant. At the latter's lack of action, he seems to get frustrated, but there is little he can do besides shout as he attempts to reaffirm his footing. He does, however, aim his crossbow at the Coralwing Glider, taking aim.


    Falion is stunned and cannot act!


    [​IMG]


    The young man stays where he is, watching the humans fall with a strangely content expression. He makes no reaction when Falion shouts at him, letting the human see his almost smug grin. And then he looks at the nearby dragons.

    "Nice work there, dragons," He says in Drakine, only slightly stumbling over the words. "I would have helped, honestly, but I thought I would just be getting in your way."


    Valence waits.

    Feravel snorts at the young man. He would reply, but there are other matters. The blacksmith seems to be using his fallen allies as cover-the only way Feravel himself could attack would be to expend a fair bit of energy. And he isn't sure how the others are faring. But Ireísed seems the most injured, and the human is aiming at her in particular. He makes a quick decision.

    A swirl of fire appears around the injured human as Feravel backs up slightly, appearing tired. He has enough strength to call out to his allies, however.

    "Ira, back out of range and see if you can heal yourself or Chaneak up!" He calls, eyes skimming the battlefield for advantages. "Aken, see what you can do about this situation. See if you can draw fire away from the others." He spots the chest near the forge, and begins moving toward it in particular. Perhaps something in it can wake Chaneak up...

    [Feravel casts Díamiir on Falion! 10 Atk Fire Damage, high chance of Immobilize, low chance of Burn. Damage and Burn chance persist for Immobilize's duration.

  2. Ira caught the sound of her name, pulling her from the frenzy that sought to claim her once again. Pull back and recover. She growled in rebellion for a moment- it felt like the thing to do- before complying. The light was already gathering about her, soothing the injuries she only just realized were there.

    When the hulking Forgemaster slumped over and embraced the ground, it was clear the most immediate threat had passed. A cursory survey of the bodies gathered nearby was enough to determine the battle was over; now it was merely a matter of eliminating the last nuisance. A sudden voice, however, put Akensken back on guard for an instant-- "Nice work there, dragons." Gaze narrow, the Armored Wyvern looked across the battlefield and saw the human standing there, easy as he pleased. "I would have helped, honestly, but I thought I would just be getting in your way," he went on to say. The corners of Akensken's mouth recoiled in distaste. 'A coward for true. Playing the field, and waiting to see which song sounds sweetest-- ours, or that of his fellows.' The ancient Firedrake might've been of the same mind by the way he ignored the boy, or perhaps he was focusing his attention on the last remaining obstacle; the crossbowman in his makeshift trench. How unfortunate that the only enemy that stood between them and the skies was the last one left...

    Now was not the time to consider the little whimsical twinges of fate. Feravel called directions from across the burgeoning burial mound, and then began to make his way towards the great forge. Akensken inclined his head to grab between his jaws a metallic ore from the remains of the rock he had smashed, and marched forward, chewing slowly on his find. He considered the human below, girded on all sides by the corpses of his comrades, and decided to leave the cornered rat well enough alone. Trying to move his cover could all too easily give the archer a clean shot in the process, and turn what had become a relatively calm, but tricky scenario into a needless tragedy. For now, they need only take their time. Chaneak was beginning to stir beside Akensken, and as long as the larger drake acted a threat to the human, Ira and the Golden Firedrake could needle the adversary to a slow end with their magic. Out of the corner of his eye, the Armored Wyvern regarded the brunet boy once more, watching for any sign of treachery. And then, without wasting any more time, he spread his wings and made a smart lunge in the trapped crossbowman's direction, loosing an aggressive sound that was half drawn-out hiss, half bloodthirsty roar. He scrutinized the soldier's actions, wary of the tiniest sign of a quarrel about to be ejected. Until such occasion, the craggy drake went on making himself appear larger and angrier than he truly was in an attempt to draw attention away from his allies.

    The blacksmith grunts as he takes the brunt of Feravel's attack, but the Firedrake is tired enough from using so much of his energy that the human seems to shrug off the more harmful effects and the fire fizzles out. With Ira out of range, the man seems to shift his focus to Chaneak... before flinching at the sudden loud roar of the Armored Wyvern. The human calls back to the dragon in his own language, sounding equally as aggressive as Akensken's hiss-roar, but beyond aiming the crossbow at him makes no move to strike, instead seeming to take the standstill as an opportunity to catch his breath.

    The boy frowns slightly as the dragon do little more than snort and ignore him, but at least it's better than being attacked. As it is, he seems content to stay standing relatively out of the way at the fringes of the conflict, watching the cornered human with a vague contentedness on his face. After a moment he gives a sort of half-sigh chuckle. "Friendly bunch."

    Feravel appears to either ignore or not hear the man's comment, focusing on his new target. The chest is nestled at the side of the forge, the flames casting an interesting sort of glow on his already-fiery scales. With his blazing wings raised, from the vantage point of the other dragons it would look almost as if Feravel was a creature of fire literally rising from the heat of the great forge.

    The dragon begins to work at the lock on the chest with his foreclaws, at first trying to pry the lid off before moving on to use the serrated inner edges of his talons to scratch at it. Satisfied that he's making progress, he flicks a golden eye at the battle and notices Chaneak stirring. "Little one, if you are in much pain I would advise you move away from the archer for a few moments," Feravel calls, finally breaking the lock with the satisfying screech of tearing metal.

    Akensken waits...


    Feravel's words drew Akensken's attention away from the enemy hunkered nearby for a moment-- the craggy dragon swiveled his head to his left and took notice of Chaneak's rousing. "Coming back to us, are you?" When the Golden Firedrake appeared to regain his lucidity, the Armored Wyvern explained, "We are almost done here; there is one left to take care of before we can fly. Can you see what you can do?" The bulky beast glanced around the field, and then realized the loitering brown-haired boy probably understood what was being said. "Human," Akensken hailed him, "you said you would have helped us-- prove it now. You will not be in anyone's way." He motioned to the cornered crossbowman. "We must take care of that one so we may move on. Surely you can do something." Observing the archer out of the corner of his eye, Akensken drew himself up once more, and took an aggressive stance in an attempt to deter the foe from making a move.
     
  6. The golden firedrake shook his head and sputtered. One moment he was charging into combat, and in the middle of it, there seemed to be a skip; a big gap where he was knocked out of his senses. He instinctively flung his talon forward to hit one of the now dead guardsmen, causing his armament to ring hollowly as it’s metal crashed ineffectively that of the defeated foe. Tellar had retracted its chains and closed as Chaneak was knocked down, and the action looked more like an irritable dragon waking and hitting an alarm clock than anything else. It had been a while since Chaneak had been in a proper fray, and this was the usual result. It seemed excitement and the idea of a team to hide behind had gone to his head.

    Chaneak stood up properly, and heard Akensken’s call to action. Confused, he looked through the pile of corpses. To his shock, a human was hiding among them slightly out of accessible footstep. A depressing sight in multiple senses, the human scrambled across his toolbelt for his crossbow and barked and hissed like a wounded animal at the other dragons. There was a small part of Chaneak that wanted to make something out of this, that wanted to try and stop the violence here; but not only was it too far gone, the human who was still standing was the one who had earned that peace. With little ceremony, Chaneak began lobbing magic spirals at the warrior, as if he were stoning the man to death with sparks of light.

    The young man appears surprised when the Armored Wyvern suddenly addresses him, telling him to help. Behind that surprise... is that a hint of fear? The man glances at his employer, who had basically shrugged off the Golden Firedrake's attack and attempted to shoot a poisoned crossbow bolt at the Wyvern with little success. The archer is still shielding himself behind the corpses of his allies, and the man gives Akensken a shrewd look. "Sure, but I'm not positive I can do much. Think you can get him out of his hiding spot?" Without waiting for an answer, the man darts forward...  before suddenly turning into a large bird in a fluid motion. The eagle hovers nearby, giving a sharp screech that causes the archer to cover his ears.

    Feravel snorts in mild surprise as what he thought to be a human turns out to not be a human at all. "A Shapeshifter. Pleasant surprise, that," the old dragon comments, collecting the items from the chest and glancing over his allies. Akensken seems to have resisted the effects of a bolt dripping with poison, Ira appears to be hanging back for the moment to regain her energy, and Chaneak has leaped right back into the battle.

    The quarrel loosed by the cornered human doesn't even get to meet Akensken's hide by the time its flight is finished-- the loose rocks and earth gathered abreast of the wyvern embrace the bolt and halt it in its path. The dragon doesn't bother restraining an amused snort. Shortly thereafter, the boy arrests his attention and then allows everyone gathered a small surprise by transforming into an eagle. After their newfound ally cows the cowering archer into submission, Akensken regards the form-changing human with a dubious look and asks, "How does it come that a Shapeshifter finds his song entangled with humans like these? You did not appear to be their captive." Pausing and glancing at the entrenched archer, the Armored Wyvern also adds, "It would seem he's staying where he is for the time being. At least you were of some help." He wasn't about to admit it aloud, but even beyond confirming that the boy could be sympathetic to their cause, learning that the stranger was a Shapeshifter made Akensken more comfortable with him. A human who presented himself as a friend could always turn out to be a backbiter, but it was common knowledge that there was no love lost between Shapeshifters and humans-- dragons, then, would be natural allies for a Shapeshifter in their current environment, right?

    Unable to speak in his current form, the Shapeshifter clacks his beak at Akensken before screeching again at the human below. Though the human had seemed to recover, he is forced to cover his ears once again. This time, though, he picks up a rock and distractedly throws it at the eagle, missing him by several feet.

    Feravel blinks as nobody save for the Shapeshifter seems to do anything. Aken appears to be regaining energy, as is Feravel himself, but... Ira seems to have retreated entirely from the battle, and Chaneak is likely still disoriented from the concussion. The Firedrake gives a sigh and focuses on regaining his energy during the brief standstill.

  10. Light continued to beat down on the human as he recoiled from the shapeshifter's ear-rending cry. It annoyed Chaneak to fight with such a lack of strategy. In reality the fight had ended, but Chaneak had no tools to disengage as he normally would. His new allies were too important, they would clearly lead him to something interesting if he just waited it out.

    Briefly the thought crossed the dragon's mind of using this moment to make smalltalk, but he couldn't find it in him to say anything while he was forced to continue throwing sparks at the ironclad vermin.

    (Chaneak attacks Falion!)
    (10 +1(Terrain) = 11 - 4 = 6 Int damage!)
     
  11. Akensken attempts to shove Surtagar's Corpse (G5) to the side.
    Akensken waits...


    Akensken swung his head one way, and then the other, noting his comrade's actions. With no one speaking, the pitiable nature of their situation became more apparent. 'Four of our kind and a Shapeshifter held up by one human, just to ensure he does not clip our wings as we fly. Why are we losing this war? We are mightier than the humans, and yet we are forced to bow by their hands and the weapons they wield. One dragon can set a town ablaze with his fire if he wishes to... do we inch closer to our demise because we hold back against the humans?' The large forge crackled as Akensken lost himself in thought for a moment... surely they could demolish the humans if they unleashed the full force of their power upon them. They could not do so without creating a mountain of collateral damage, however-- their war was one which was fought in raids, all across Durasken, and to make any real impact, the source of these hunters would have to be targeted, otherwise the stream would keep flowing; it would have to be their towns and homes that were destroyed, rather than each individual group of hunters. But that would mean reducing innocent lives to ashes-- women and children who had never lifted a finger against a drake. 'They kill our innocents, why should we not do likewise?' Akensken wondered reproachfully. He knew the thinking was wrong, but wished he could believe it all the same. It was not fair.

    Shaking his head and snorting, he moved forward and jammed the knuckle of his wing under the corpse of the large Forgemaster. With the archer staggered once more, they might not get another opportunity to try and break the shell he had found for himself.
     
  12. Ira had remained reserved. She simply watched, as if a specter absent from reality but forced to observe it. She couldn't seem to do anything. Her mind was torn in so many directions which one was she to follow? It was like walking in a dream as ethereal images danced across the landscape, fragments of never-forgotten memories melded with never-to-be fantasies. Here she was, at the most peculiar moment of her life, standing at the crossroads. Some how, some way, she knew that whatever decision she made in this moment was to be defining. Perhaps this was her delay? Her haunted recoil?

    Snap. Blood drips from the pierced hide of her claws.

    They die.

    The old Firedrake sighs in apparent exhaustion as Akensken manages to move the forgemaster's corpse out of the way, and Chaneak and Ira attack the archer. It seems the battle is about to draw to a close, once and for all. "An unpleasant business," Feravel comments, glancing at each of the other dragons to ensure they are not terribly injured. Battered and bruised, in some cases, but still alive and well and perhaps winded from the long ordeal. "We may just have to rest after this one."

    - Guard Officer x3
    -- 24 Gold
    -- Broken Horn [Bone] (A cracked and broken dragon horn. It's still sharp, and smoothly curved.)
    -- Lancehead [Metal] (A conical, slightly blunted tip from a human's lance. It looks workable.)
    -- Shield Scrap [Metal] (The torn and battered edge of a broken shield. The wood is jagged and unworkable, but the metal lining seems fine.)

    - Blacksmith Striker x1
    -- 10 Gold
    -- Dragon Leather
    -- Metal Rod [Metal] (Used by humans to leverage heavy objects, this might have use as reinforcement.)
    -- Crossbow Bolt [Projectile | 50% Atk damage, chance of Poison] x5 (Bolts meant to be loaded into a crossbow. The tips smell like poison.)

    - Forgemaster x1
    -- 15 Gold
    -- Spiked Gauntlets [Metal] (These weapons are too small to fit any of your party. If only!)
    -- Coal [Mineral | +5 MP, +3 Int for duration of battle] (A short-lived fuel, the carbon residue would remain on a dragon's teeth and improve their firebreath.)
    -- Metal Plate [Metal] (A relatively undamaged sheet of steel, easy to work with if you have the right tools.)


    ((Please update your profiles; the Profile Thread is being updated accordingly. Casual reminder that the Experience Curve will be switching over as each character reaches Level 10, and Exp will only scale accordingly after everyone has been switched over.

    Burst Mode should be unlocked after the next battle. As a general update: Everyone should have one unspent Burst Point. Please remember that since Temper is integral to the Burst Mode mechanics, you will need to have those figured out before the end of the Ch 1.5 battle.

    You will shortly have the opportunity to obtain new equipment, before that battle occurs. Cerby, I don't remember what we agreed on in terms of Aken's accessory, remind me to talk to you about that later.

    Everyone may begin freeforming at their leisure.

  16. The great Firedrake snorts as the human finally falls. Examining the clawful of items he'd retrieved from the chest, Feravel glances toward his allies and approaches the cluster of dragons.

    As he does so, the eagle glides over to the small group of trees and alights on one of the branches. It preens a wing for a few seconds, then looks at the dragons and takes on a human shape once more. The young human-appearing man sits casually on the tree branch, his legs dangling off as he calmly watches the battle-worn dragons.

    "Impressive work! Glad I could help," the Shapeshifter comments lightly in Drakine. "Passing through or did you attack the forge on purpose?"

    "Passing through," Feravel replies, overlooking the pile of corpses as if examining them. "We can hardly be considered to have attacked this forge when the humans were the ones that struck first." The Firedrake settles near the other dragons, beside Aken, his attention drawn from the human bodies to the Shapeshifter as the conversation ensues.

    The Shapeshifter shrugs. "Well, you were the ones who chose to react to the attack instead of continuing to fly... but I won't complain about that." Feravel raises an eye ridge at the man, who seems not to notice and continues. "You did me a favor, anyway. Surtagar is- was- always insufferable." The Shapeshifter leans against the tree trunk, watching the dragons from his branch. "You're welcome to recover here for a bit. The name's Valence. You?"
     
  17. Akensken was gazing at the freshly-fallen foe when the Shapeshifter started speaking again. The human voice pulled him out of the muddled pool of his own thoughts, and he noticed Feravel had rejoined them. "We will not linger here long," Akensken replied first to Valence. Not only were they already on their way somewhere else, but the large dragon simply did not wish to stay in this place much longer-- with its crowd of the dead, its cocksure Shapeshifter, or its ambient taste that made Akensken want to curl his lip out of bitterness. Looking around at his fellow Drakine, he noted, "We are all able, are we not?" The battle had been long and more sobering than it had needed to be, but all his fellows seemed capable of flight nevertheless. Akensken did not want to push any of them if they were more tired than they appeared, but for once he longed to be in the air as quickly as possible. Despite his reluctance, he returned his steady stare back to the Shapeshifter and met his query. "That aside. I am Akensken. You have still not answered my question; what were you doing with the humans if you did not care for them?"
     
  18. Ira's aggressive medium steadily subsided as the final human slumped to the ground. She breathed and she breathed again. The Elder started conversation with the pseudo-human with Aken joining in and still Ira held to her breathing. In. Out. She could feel her boiling blood simmer into a distant agitation and finally into an almost calm. When was the last time she was truly calm? How long has it been since she stopped sniffing over her shoulder? Had she become paranoid, or simply cautious with reason? She sighs, letting the thoughts melt from her brain as exhaustion sought to cleave her in two. She pushed the weariness aside and hovered gently nearer the others, keeping a cautious/paranoid eye on the shapeshifter. She said nothing, but tried to hold back any external signs of hostility. Which ultimately came down to a bitter stare.
     
  19. With no ceremony for the fallen, Chaneak had already returned to the forge as if that’s what everyone had landed to do in the first place. With glee, and without asking permission from the shapeshifter, he grabbed at a half-finished sword and stuck it into the fire, slowly twisting it into nonsensical shapes with prismatic lights. A wave of nostalgia washed over him as he saw a chunk of brass among various materials He grabbed it in his free talon, seemly with no actual purpose in mind. It would usually take a lot of work for Chaneak to find himself human tools and materials to work with. Technically it had taken a lot of work this time as well, but he was only here following Feravel’s lead.

    Come to think of it, why did Feravel lead Chaneak here? No one seemed half as excited as he was. And so, the firedrake turned around from the forge, on his hind legs meekly holding a red-hot loop-de-looped sword in Tellar’s hand and a dirty brass ingot in the other, and injected himself into the conversation. “He didn’t exactly say he hated humans did he? I heard him say he hated ‘Surtagar.’ Surtagar is what those knights called the firekeeper, right? He seemed particularly violent, even for a human, and even for an enemy.”

    “Bastard hit me clear in the skull.” Chaneak rambled, grimacing off into the distance for a few moments. “Sorry;” he then let out, realizing he had skipped ahead. “My name is Chaneak.”
